This is a continuation-in-part of abandoned application Ser. No. 53,190, filed June 29, 1979 and identically entitled.
A double-ended spoon for babies is known (U.S. Pat. No. 3,795,062 to Lamb). But none is known to have same-sized double ends with oppositely facing same-sized concavities at each end. It is the principal object of this invention to provide such a spoon. Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent as the following detailed description proceeds.
FIG. 1 is a plan view of a preferred embodiment of the invention.
FIG. 2 is an elevational view in section taken on the line 2--2 of FIG. 1.
FIG. 3 is an enlarged elevational view in section taken on the line 3--3 of FIG. 1.
With reference now to the drawings, the numeral 11 generally designates a baby spoon which can be made of metal or plastic material. The spoon 11 comprises two same-sized generally flat co-planar heads 13 connected by a generally flat handle part 15. The heads 13 have oppositely facing same-sized concavities 17, which can be made deeper than shown by increasing the size of the rims 19.
The rims 19 and the margins of the handle part 15 are rounded for safety and for comfortable holding.
